Great side dish, quick and simple.

I have nuked squash before, but only with the brown sugar/butter combo. The addition of honey does give it an extra touch. I used buttercup squash in place of the acorn. Buttercup is very similar, but a bit on the drier/fluffier side. I also added a few slices of onion, just because. :) Thanks morgainegeiser for a wonderful switch to microwave squash. I'll be using the honey method from now on. Made for the Auzzie/NZ Recipe Swap #33
